What Size Skip Do I Need?

If you’re wondering what skip size do I need for a house clearance or what size skip should I get for a demolition, we’re here to help.

Different projects have different demands – and so will require different skip sizes. So, let’s guide you through the key options available.

Skip sizes explained

  • 2 – 4 yard skip – simple projects that don’t produce very much waste, such as a small clearout of a garden or a straightforward kitchen refit
  • 6 yard skip – house clearances, small demolition projects and refurbishments of kitchens or bathrooms
  • 8 yard skip – also known as the builders skip size, this option is suitable for a large building project along with full home extensions, and home and garden renovations
  • 12 yard skip – more suited to commercial projects than domestic, they are suited to office clearouts, light construction waste and for use in industrial environments. The larger end of this range is also appropriate for lighter, bulkier waste such as furniture and packaging
  • RoRo skip – used for large construction and demolition projects that produce large volumes of bulky waste
